Sequels are hard. An author can no longer count on dazzling the reader with world building, creatures, and spiffy science. These things have already been established in the first book, so sequels have to make a go of things based on a good story and solid character development. This one certainly does that. The tension runs thick throughout the book as once again an old enemy has returned to lay claim to the human race. At what point must Socket sacrifice who he is in order to fulfill his obligations? It's riveting reading, and while there is plenty of battle action, it's the more cerebral portions of the book that I found myself drawn to. Socket's search for awareness and realization was nicely portrayed. The addition of Pon, his teacher, added an unexpected and welcome depth to the story.
In the interest of not spoiling anything, I won't speak much to the ending except to say it brought all the story elements and characters together in a way that was totally unexpected. Congratulations to the author for not leaving us hanging off a cliff, telling a complete story, and offering up a middle book that was not full of filler. He gives us a story that takes his characters to new heights and will leave you pondering the ending long after you are done with the final page. Start with The Discovery of Socket Greeny, and then travel on with Socket in his further adventures. I'm off to look for the next one. This one is an enthusiastic recommend for both teens and adults.
One shortcoming: the character in first person speculates for us what is happening, or what had happened by metaphysically going through others' perspectives. By doing this, the author makes other characters much less active. (It didn't help that the Paladins were so reserved by nature.) Bursts of great action, and also great world building.
